The Leverhulme Trust has distributed grants worth more than £1 billion since the year 2000, to support research and education across academic disciplines; assisting talented individuals in the arts, humanities, sciences and social sciences to realise their personal vision in research and professional training.
As well as substantial grants for research projects, we offer fellowships for researchers throughout their academic career, grants for international collaboration and travel, and support for the fine and performing arts.
Our approach to grant-making is distinctive. Our awards are made in the responsive mode, with the choice of topic and research design left with applicants. We look for work of outstanding merit, which is original, important, and has significance beyond a single field. We particularly value research that crosses disciplinary boundaries or that is willing to take risks in its pursuit of new knowledge or understanding.
